    Icons missing in start menu following Creators update.


    I've got missing start menu icons following the Creators Update, coming and going on boot ups. Anyone else?

    Maybe one of these steps will help:
    Run administrative command prompt: Sfc /scannow
    See what happens if you create a test user.

    In control panel click on troubleshooting then view all then run the windows store apps troubleshooter. Or use the first link in the Microsoft easy fix for the Microsoft store.

    If the above have not fixed it try rebuilding the Iconcache.db

    Sfc /scannow passed and also seemed to restore the icons. The missing icons I think were mainly 3rd party apps which were mainly yellow folder icons...

    Oh, and what happened to command prompt being in the start menu right click menu?

    Until the start menu is fixed these are additional methods to get to command prompt:

    When you used a different user was the start menu the same or different?

    Run the Microsoft start menu fix: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...t-menu-cortana

    Or you could just change it back to being Command Prompt. It's always been an option to choose between showing Command Prompt or Powershell for a right-click on Start. The only thing that changed with Creators was the default choice.

    NoteStarting with Windows 10 build 14971, Windows PowerShell will show in the Win+X by default now instead of Command Prompt.

    @zbook What do you mean by was the start menu the same or different?

    If you suspect a corrupt user profile is the cause of Start menu 'oddities' then the standard test is to log in as another user and see if the Start menu is OK for them.

    Command Prompt/PowerShell isn't an 'oddity', it's a 'feature'. Actually, the choice of PowerShell or Command Prompt on Start is a per-user setting so in this case different users could legitimately see different results, depending on their choices.

    I've seen this issue a few times also. Some times they are blank (no folder icon), sometimes they look like they have multiple icons. It comes and goes and not just on reboot. Expand a menu item will show the folder icon, collapse it and it disappears.

    Yes sure, I see. Right now both my standard and admin account start menus seem OK. Possibly the file system scan corrected something. I will keep an eye on it and test with another user account if need be.

    On one occasion the icons were blank and on another they were using an image from my pictures folder as the icon...
